Salman Khan starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ was released in India and many parts of world to blockbuster business and became Salman’s career biggest hit at that time only to be throned by his latest release Tiger Zinda Hai which collected a mountain of money on box office. Bajrangi comes very high on the list of all time Indian film grossers but nothing is in comparison to Chinese market who has 5 times the screens in their country. Aamir is the only Hindi film star who has juiced the potential of that country and has been for many years while it is Salman’s debut in China.
Salman is one of the biggest star in the world as Hindi films are watched around the globe hence his reputation must have preceded him in China as well as mega movie star. Bajrangi is one of his career’s best film and it has connected with people despite of demographics. It is the story of a simple man who finds a Pakistani girl in India and swears by his lord that he will take her to the home cross border despite of extreme political tensions between the two countries.
Bajrangi is a tear jerker all the time because the girl can’t speak and yet they somehow make a bond worthy enough to make it a major motion picture. Bajrangi opened to $2.24 million on it’s first day which is a lot more than Aamir’s biggest hit in China ‘Dangal’ but comparatively less than ‘Secret Superstar’ which has collected more than 850 crores in the country. On it’s second day Bajrangi picked a rise and banked $3.11 million in it’s locker. It has already collected a massive 34.97 crores in China and word of mouth is exceptional around the film which is why the collections are expected to grow as much as Dangal and create enormous benchmark in China.
